A talented cast fails to save this unremarkable thriller.

A lukewarm outing that mostly just bops from plot point to plot point.
Double Jeopardy is single-minded and engaging thriller storytelling without an afterglow.
Beresford's straight-ahead approach to the material, as a heart-tugger, is 180 degrees wrong.
It has no subtlety, no shadings, and no suspense, and might as well not have a screenplay.
One of the dumbest chase thrillers ever to stumble onto the big screen!
Ms. Judd looks too dainty to throw herself into anything more reckless than a manicure.
Siit back, relax, and marvel at the wonder that is Ashley Judd.
The way the screenwriters treat the law is in many ways similar to way they treat intelligence of the viewers.
Double Jeoprady has all the legal savvy of the O.J. Simpson jury.
The script, not rooted in logic, leaves certain plot elements unexplained. And when the ending arrives, it's no surprise.
This film takes a potentially interesting premise and makes some mistakes that result in a faulty final product.
This bone-weary material would barely make for a passable episode of Diagnosis: Murder.
Quite an overused idea, the beginning seemed to take quite a while but then the main part (especially her jailing) didn't take very long at all and left me confused about the time span of the film. Acting was decent but nothing special and overall a very obvious film with no guessing to be done.
This movie is a thriller about a woman convicted (wrongly) of murdering her husband. She gets a lengthy prisons sentence but gets out early on good behavior. When she discovers that not only was she (correctly) set up, but that the person who did it was her husband, she sets out for revenge, planning to exploit the double jeopardy loop hole which says a person cannot be convicted for the same crime twice.
Double jeopardy is a real thing, but the film plays fast and loose with it, and the way it is demonstrated here isn't actually how it works. That aside, this is a very entertaining film, despite being kinda silly and on the nose. The motivations for various things (aside from the revenge) aren't really well constructed, and the writing just feels kinda 'bare minimum', but the performances are passable, and the audience does feel satisfaction in seeing Ashley Judd's Libby run around on her quest for revenge.
This film comes off to me as the cinematic equivalent of an airport novel. I mean that as mostly a compliment, even if I don't completely recommend the film as something worth watching very often. Had this been better scripted, and maybe had a bit tighter direction, then it might hold up as more than rainy day popcorn fare.
Whilst I do not find Ashley Judd one othe more convincing Actresses, this is a film that holds yours attention and urges the need for retribution to take place. Cheesy in parts, but helped along by Tommy Lee Jones, this is an enjoyable film of the 90's.
Ashley Judd is great in this film. A few twists in the film and a great ending.
